Red Beans & Rice recipe


Red Beans and Rice

By: Gigi Howe

Here’s a dish that is terrific in a few different ways.. its economical, healthy, easy to prepare and tastes good!!  And its made in the crock pot.  Personally, I love crock pot recipes.  You can spice it up, or keep it mild.  If you want to make it a meatless meal omit the turkey sausage and add another can of beans, doesn’t have to be kidney beans, you can do a mix.

Red Beans and Rice


–  1 can of red kidney beans
–  1 cup onions, chopped
